Summary

‘I've made four thousand six hundred medium-sized quiches and personally baked two tons of light crust pastry. And for what?’

As a clergy wife, Grace has spent a lifetime on best behaviour. Now, following the death of her husband Bardolph, she is enjoying the new-found freedom to do and say exactly as she pleases. But the return of her eccentric missionary sister Ruth, together with some disturbing revelations force Grace to confront the truth of her marriage.

With sharp-edged comedy and probing wit, this new play asks whether God can be trusted to do anything right at all. 'Or is the whole thing a divine exercise in trial and error?'

‘Everett's play asks serious questions about loss, faith and just how well we can ever know those we love ... [a] fine new play... Everett, a dramatist new to me, has come up with that increasingly rare commodity, a boulevard comedy that is both entertaining and affecting.... this is a funny, touching and genuinely thought-provoking comedy, and one that surely deserves a West End transfer after its run in Chichester.’ - Charles Spencer, Daily Telegraph

‘A very English comedy with some real emotion... a sure-fire Chichester hit’ - Fiona Mountford, The Evening Standard
